Schleswig-Holsteinischer Kunstverein e.V.
From 2012 onwards, the Kunstverein will be presenting the independent approach of a young artist
Angela Glajcar - White
12 September 2014 - 8 February 2015
In 2014, the Schleswig-Holsteinischer Kunstverein is again presenting a unique example of recent approaches in art with an artwork made especially for the exhibition. This year we have chosen the sculptress Angela Glajcar, who predominantly works with paper producing large, room-filling formats. The artwork showing in Kiel is made of 800 g/m2 heavy paper. It is monumental in its dimensions and impact, while at the same time very delicate; it unites opposites such hard and soft, light and dark. Thus the works title White refers both to the color of the paper as well as the sculpture’s metaphysical meaning. Angela Glajcar’s powerful installation transforms the impression of the space in which it hangs and is closely interrelated to the Kunsthalle’s architecture.
16 March – 8 September 2013
After commencing the exhibition series of the Schleswig-Holsteinische Kunstverein last year, in 2013 we will be continuing with the Syrian artist Khaled al Khani (b. 1975), whom we have invited to mount an exhibition in a space reserved for his art at the Kunsthalle. The artist studied painting in Hama and Damascus. In 2011 he fled Syria and is living in exile in Paris. Khaled al Khani’s expressive, figurative painting is filled with impressions in his homeland. The central topic of the artist’s work is freedom. Khaled al Khani has produced a room installation made especially for the exhibition at the Kunsthalle.
January 14 – April 29, 2012
The Kunstverein exhibition series will commence with a room installation that was made especially for the Kunstverein:
Chiharu Shiota does performances and is indebted to theater, draws and conceives installations that often fill whole rooms. A key characteristic of her works is use of black cotton thread that she, to name a few options, weaves about tables, clothing, a piano or herself. The web of black lines constructed in this way resembles a spatial drawing. It triggers associations of the lifeline of our palms, paths of communication, or the labyrinths of memory.
